At a special meeting of Beth Ja-
cob Congregation, Miami Beach,
plans for the erection of a ont
story Talmud Torah building to be
built in the rear of the Synagogue,
were adopted. The building com-
mittee which will have full charge
of the erection consists of Jacob
Becker, Harry Wasserman. Harry
Levitt, and I. L. Mintzer. The build-
ing will provide four class rooms
for the Talmud Torah and Sunday
school, which when the removable
partition will be taken out will af-
ford a large auditorium capable of
seating several hundred people.
Erection of the building became ne-
cessary because of the unprecedent-
ed growth of the Talmud Torah
under the learship of Rabbi David
I. Rosenbloom of the Congregation,
who came to the pulpit of Beth Ja-
cob during the past High Holy
Days. From the continual increase
in the attendance it became appar-
ent that a Talmud Torah would be
indispensable. A teacher will be
engaged shortly to assist the Rabbi
in the instruction of the children.
With the subject of "How the
Girl's Division of the Y. M. H. A.
can contribute to the general wel-

the subject of a prize contest, the

announced that entries could be
received for the best composition to
be written on this subject. Three
prizes will be awarded lor the three
best compositions, which must be
turned in not later than January
16th. Miss Bernice Schwartz Is
chairman of a committee that will
choose three impartial judges to
select the winners.

Scripture Reading. Psalm (XXVII
At midnight, tonight, millions of human beings will escort the year "So^Zlr having"been here. Their presence here was counted in years
1933 to its exit and they will welcome the year 1934 upon
Thus a new vear will creep up on them unnoticed, though hilariously
received. The new year will be added to the sum total of their lives, and,
they will be that much older, and one step closer to the grave and ex-
tinction.In the commonly accepted view.
I ask 'Whv count years? Why is it necessary to label the passing of
time?" Arthur Brisbane, in his column, one day last week, in comment-
ing on the case of a voung woman in a local hospital as the victim of
amnesia, wrote, ". we are all in much the same condition. Here we
are on earth, identified by names given to us. We don't know who we
really are, whence we came or whither we are going when we leave here.
We go to and fro for a few years, eat, talk, grow old. then move on. and
the names that we had for a while, are put on tombstones. But who we
are. of what we are, or why we come here and then go. we know as little
as the unfortunate victim of amnesia." Reason ponders and has no
answer for this perplexing problem of life.
But Faith views the matter differently. Moses Ben Nachman, a
Hebrew poet of the Thirteenth Century, summed up the problem and
religion's answer in this verse.
"Ere time began, ere age to age had thrilled,
I waited in His storehouse, as He willed.
He gave me being; but, my years fulfilled.
I shall be summoned back before the King."
It is true that we know not the Divine Plan. but. in our groping
Faith, we believe that the soul is imperishable; that it has existed from
the beginning oi time "in His storehouse," and that merely fulfil His
bidding, for a time; then, we return whence we came. When you speak
to mi past and present. I ask you. Why count years?" What do
we know of Time? Where was today, yesterday? Where will it be. tomor-
row? Whither did yesterday go? Whence shall tomorrow come?
We speak of time; we have cut it into segments; and. we measure
life in terms ol year.-. We speak of youth and old age; we deal in human
flesh and label it "virile youth.'' "prime ot life," and senility." as if it
were so much meat on the butcher's block. We disqualify B man from

we consider old; and we show a preference for a wine oi the vintage of !

I haw proven the folly ol that by exchanging the labels of a
cheap cigar and oi a high priced ad, then, having given then to
moker, I have watched hli enjoymenl ol what he
thought wa.- a hi h priced cigar and I navi seei ust at what he

against rrors. They advised, "Do not concern yourself with the lug,
but. with what it contain There is a new jug that contains old i
and an old jug that dues not even ontain new wine." In this ma
they conveyed the thought that a young man may contain maturi
dom, and an old man may not even have the wisdom of youth.
What care you how old one is? What assurance doi Ive you?
What guarantee ol maturity in mental development accompanies Ion

It is so with the fallings commonly attributed to old age. I have met
men and women who had passed the age of sixty and seventy, and who
displayed minds more nimble than the average youth "in his prime."
and old men who were more modern and open-minded than the so-called
progressive of this generation. Years are as reliable an indication as the
cigar labels which I had interchanged.
We must avail ourselves of time and of its opportunities without re-
gard to the label it bears. We know only Life. And, we know only this
Life which we experience at the moment. Other existences, if they have
existed for us, are not part of our present consciousness. A Hebrew think-
er of the Fourteenth Century. Yedaya Penini, wrote, "Use thy time as
thou wouldst a doubtful companion: extract the good and avoid the evil.
Avail thyself of the few opportunities of improvement in his company
.... And remember that the companionship of time ls but of short
duration. It flies more quickly than the shades of evening, We are like a
child that grasps in his hand a sunbeam. He opens his hand soon again,
but. to his amazement, finds it empty and the brightness gone
As this year draws to a close, there are many who are grieved that
they did not acquire more of earthly gain than they now possess. They
consider the passing of the year 1933 as of a period of time during which
they had been cheated. Material wealth avoided them. Their eyes and
attention have been centered upon those neighbors whose earthly pi
sions outnumber their own. To these I wish to quote some pearls of wis-
dom by Solomon Ibn Gabirol.
"I compare a man in quest of worldly wood to the thirsty person who
lights upon salt water; the more of it he drinks, the greater his thirst.''
"A man in quest of worldly good is like a hungry dog who has found
a bone and gnaws it. From too much gnawing, blood oozes from its
mouth; and the dog licks the blood, thinking that it Ls from the bone,
whereas it is its own blood. Similarly while a man concentrates upon
worldly matters to the exclusion of the service of God, he imagines that
he is a gainer, whereas he Ls a laser since he is held answerable for his
"What advantage the poor man has over the rich! For thou never
findest anybody rebel against the Creator for the purpose of being re-
duced to poverty, but only to enrich himself."
Again I ask, "Why count years?" The number of years of one's life
is no indication of the Life. It is the accomplishments during the life-
i arrival. nol in acc0mplishmenU>. Vain counting.
But. in the words of John Edward Allen, I "Desire To Live."
I would not have my life be one of bliss,
Untouched by heart-ache, agony, despair
A pale anemic thing: My rightly prayer
Is that with each new day I shall not miss
High venturings, nor undeserve the hiss
OI envious human moles who never dare
To touch off rockets in their souls and flare
Above their deepening grooves.
O grant me this:
That I shall scale Life's peaks, explore its glooms,
Know mountained ecstasies, deep-valleyed pains
That when my last red sands by Time are sieved
And Fate has struck my sinews from her looms,
I shall have earned three words o'er my remains
